From the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:
More than 5.1 million seniors and people with disabilities on Medicare saved over $3.2 billion on prescription drugs because of the new health care law….For St. Louis resident Fritzi Lainoff and her husband, the discounts meant $2,500 back in their pockets last year. “It was a blessing,” she said. “The law’s Medicare savings have made an enormous difference.”
Given Obama’s almost certain reelection, it looks like other key components of the law will roll out as planned, making repeal that much harder. Said another way, people like getting stuff.
